Should Kansas schools allow corporations to sell soda and candy in vending machines?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on January 23, 2006
“Absolutely not. I think those things are poison, and they contribute to learning disabilities and obesity problems. It’s not food.”
“I think they should. We have about 10 vending machines in one spot at Topeka High. I think the students can make their own decisions about it.”
“Sure. Didn’t you drink soda and eat candy when you were growing up? It would be better if they sold sports drinks and other kinds of food, but they should be able to have them there.”
“Yeah, why not? I don’t think the responsibility lies with the schools or corporations. I think it lies mostly with the parents and then with the students.”
